Outfit of the Day: The Body Shop & Fonzworth Bentley


Before I went to the DFW blogger meetup Saturday, I was getting ready to leave and my hunny took a look at me and he proceeded to tell me that I look like Fonzworth Bentley and then handed me an umbrella and started humming the song "I like the way you move," by OutKast....LOL.  I was cracking up all the way to the North Park Mall.   I decided to try a little color blocking with my outfit....and low and behold I actually am wearing a piece from Forever 21 plus size line.  I have vowed against such a thing because I am...well...far from 21 years old and the line also reminds me of Wet Seal and I feel it is too young for me.  But I saw something I liked and decided to try.  The sweater is really nice and thick.    I must say I am actually surprised at the quality for only $22.  Who knew?!?  I probably wont be a regular shopper, but a piece every now and again probably won't hurt.

Anywho, Elissa from Dress with Courage hosted a blogger meetup at The Body Shop. I must say I was really excited, because I knew a lot of "smell goods" & "girly creams" were gonna be in full effect and they WERE! The Body Shop showed us a good time with plenty of free samples and discounts. They have so many great products it was hard to restrain myself. So I ended up spending quite a bit at The Body Shop. What on? I am glad you asked. I got a new skin care regiment recommended to me by the store manager, Brian. I am also innnnnnn looooovvvvveeee with the Bronzer section. Anything you want to have that much coveted summer glow.  The products smelled so good and because everything is made from natural ingredients it makes it even better for your skin.




One thing I was super impressed with The Body Shop was the orgins of their ingredients.  They are all natural.  They actually buy their ingredients directly from small farmers from countries all over the world. I love companies that obtain their products with integrity and respect for all involved.  That is one reason I am a Chipotle fanatic (all of you that follow me on twitter know this). The Body Shop also is host to a  "Stop Sex Trafficking" Campaign in the United States.   They hope with petition signatures they can get laws on the books to better prosecute sex traffickers.  You can sign the petition in the store and with you signature you get $5 off of you purchase.  Win/Win right!?!  But in all seriousness, I watch the documentaries on sex trafficking of young women & children and its one of the most horrendous crimes.  

On a lighter note, I love having a summer glow.  My favorite bronzer is from The Body Shop.  It gives me great color, it doesn't make me breakout, & smells good.   Where do you buy some of your favorite bronzers for the summer?
